This is it!  This is our chance to be heard.  Tuesday, the Joint Finance Committee will decide the fate of Medicaid in Wisconsin.

It's time to speak out to Save BadgerCare like never before!

This Tuesday, the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) will be taking up debate on changes to Medicaid and will be discussing the analysis and recommendations from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB). We need to send a message loud and clear today - Save BadgerCare - Protect Eligbility, Benefits and Affordability!

To Save BadgerCare, we recommend the following:
  1. Maintain the current eligbility & benefits
  2. For the base re-estimate for Medicaid, use realistic & conservative estimates as outlined in LFB Paper 340 Alternatives 1 and 2 (page 7)
  3. Do not give a "blank check" to an unelected official like DHS Secretary Smith and require more oversight and accountability as outlined in LFB Paper 341 Alternatives 2a and 2b (page 5).
To make sure our message to Save BadgerCare is heard loud and clear, we need everyone to send a message to the JFC today encouraging them to Save BadgerCare and Protect Eligibility, Benefits and Affordability
To send a message to all members of the Joint Finance Committee:
  1. Link here
  2. Select "Budget Comments" under the "choose your legislator" list. (by addressing your message to "Budget Comments", it will be sent to all members of the Joint Finance Committee.)
  3. Select "Save BadgerCare - Protect Medicaid" as your "subject".
  4. Add your message / personal story and let them know why BadgerCare is important to you!
After you've sent a message, plan to watch the JFC hearing starting at 11am Tuesday!
Thank you!
